I had a short ride out to Kidderminster and Redditch Thursday 3 May 2018 and took these shots in Kidderminster bus station.
My transport from The New Inn Ombersley Road was 30813 FJ57 CYW a Volvo B7RLE with Wright Eclipse Urban bodywork which is about to return to Worcester on the 303. Nice bus to travel in.

The next bus 30806 WX58 FRV a MAN 14.220 with Plaxton Centro bodywork made me wonder about the strange company logo amidships. Then it came to me, it must have been fitted with a central emergency door from another bus!

Coniston Coaches Optare Solo YJ06 YSE is a long way from home working 15A service to Stourport, if the Llew Jones logos are correct! Is this bus on loan or owned by Coniston?
